don't feel bad about getting mad. you're only human - i would've done the same thing but probably worse. you take the time to research these things and plan them and it stinks when someone doesn't appreciate the effort you've made in planning things and just ignores it. i'm not saying your DH didn't appreciate your effort, but you know what i mean - that was a very important thing for you and he either forgot or didn't listen. and it's not like you freak out when *anything* goes wrong. but this was something that you had stressed was important. you had a right to lose your cool a little bit.

i'm really glad the girls got to meet the fairies though! really getting there first thing in the morning is the way to do it, especially during the busy times. i wanted to meet fawn....so cool that you guys got to meet her! she's my favorite.....behind tink, of course.

Laura, You had some great pictures. Poor Luke, who would have thought he would be brought to Disney just to be traumatized by a female mouse!
Poor little guy just doesn't know what to think...

This one just made me smile, Em looks like she's about to click her heals! How cute!

Oh wow!! You have some WONDERFUL Photopass pictures!! My favorite pic is the one of your family at O'hana. They must only take those at breakfast as we didn't have ours taken for the dinner.

Beautiful pictures! I like the Belle one too, and the one with Aurora twirling Hannah. The O'hana picture of your whole family is really nice also.

Wonderful photopass pictures, and add my name to the list that loves the family picture at Ohana's, Hannah twirling with Aurora, and Em dancing with Belle. I also like the pictures with Pooh and gang, everyone is giving their biggest smile.

It must be a theme today! Those are exactly the pics I was going to comment on. Your family is just adorable!

Oh, great pictures!! I know all about those upset moments - I think the heat, and the crowds, and the fact that you've been looking forward to this for FOREVER and it's not working out the way you'd planned just are too much. Someone in our group has one at least once a trip...and, yes, it's often me.

We're in your neck of the woods today - visiting Great Wolf Lodge (got here yesterday) and King's Island (today) for a birthday trip for DD from her grandparents. I can completely sympathize with you about all three kids melting down - I am upstairs right now with the littlest one because just getting through breakfast was tough! I'm not quite sure about the park today...

That was not my best day, nor my favorite day, and sadly we were at our favorite park.

I'm glad the girls had some fun with the fairies and I'm sorry you were in a funk. I hope you recovered quickly because I have a feeling you are going to be taking care of some meltdowns.... Three in fact!

Hannah's is short lived and funny tears, Emily is well ugly and long lasting (some due to inconsiderate people and well 1 inch) and Luke just had a quick fit.

It was by far my maddest moment ever at WDW. Luckily that was it, and I think I learned a lot about how we can do WDW from it.

I made the girls wait to visit Ariel's Grotto until the day they wore thier Ariel dresses!! The girls look so happy with the faires!! We saw Tink and Fawn, too!! But we saw Silvermist instead of Rosetta.
Silvermist would have been a hit here too. We saw Ariel again, and Em would have gone everyday to see her, multiple times if she could.

I am very worried about the rest of your day though!
Tinkerbell Massacre is what is is known by at our house, my parent laugh because well they know me....I just stressed terribly about meeting them.

Lucky you for not having character obsessed kids. My girls like it a lot, and we try hard to not wait in line to do it.

I know Brooklynn wants to meet Tink but I know we will have to be there first thing because I am not trying to occupy a 2 year old and a 3month old in an hour long line! The girls are adorable in their Tink dresses.

Jill, just get there early, they do open at 9:45 and I would really try to leave the stroller back at the Teacups and then you don't have to stop and waste time parking your stroller in toontown. It is so cute... here is hoping it works well for you!

UGH! I can so relate to the Tinkerbell Massacre. It's like they look at you and nod but don't hear a word you are saying. I've had a few of these moments but the worst was in MK, I think there are just so many things your have to get done first thing that it stresses me out.

I'm nervous about the rest of your day.
I tried to really divide up what we hoped to do at MK over the three days. That was the big item for that day, and well he just did not get it!

I love the picture of all 3 kids with Ariel! Luke looks so happy!!!
Luke liked Ariel a lot.

I think when they saw the long line they realized I was right. It was say 10:15 and it was already over an hour. Poor people that thought it opened at 10.

Of course we are all adults and they are no children, just a few that act like children.

It was harder traveling with three kids, and a party of seven. I know next time some things I will establish with my parents before we go....

Emily is really cute in pictures right now. When we look at all the pics there aren't many where she is not smiling away!

It can't be a bad day, we are at Disney world-I just kept thinking that all day long ...

I am glad to see that you did not have to wait long, and the girls got to see Tink in all their Tinkerbell finery!!!! THEY LOOKED SO CUTE!!! I sure do hope things get better as the day goes on, but I'm a little worried after your preview notes!!!! YIKES!
Thanks Jen... it was hard for me to swallow ....

The girls look super cute in their Tink dresses!
Thanks LL, I felt terrible, but still was mad he failed to follow the plan- I waited in the heat, while he did a ride-

The dresses and Tink Crocs are too cute. I love Emily's expression here. Brooklynn does the same thing. She really checks out who these characters are while they are signing books.

You will enjoy all the cute details at Pixie Hollow!

We only saw 2, a different Fawn but the same Tink.

I'd say I hope your day got better, but it doesn't sound like it did right away.

Two was all you saw, I thought there were always three. I am sure that the "Tinkerbelle Massacre" will be a laugh for a long time .... we have some from when I was growing up that I remember.

But everyone was the first to say we never really waited at WDW--- I wonder why that was!

I saw you this day!! My dd and I were at Dumbo, on the batch to ride behind you. I kept hoping that I would see you again and I would be brave enough to say something and not appear *weird*

As for your *moment*, we all have them! I just posted about mine on my TR. If folks would just listen, then they wouldn't happen!

Yay! for seeing the fairies in the end though. I showed my dd the photos and she was so jealous. Fawn is her favorite but we didn't go this day and when we went we saw Iridessa, Tink, and Silvermist.

I'm looking forward to reading more. I hope the heat and the meltdowns don't ruin the rest of the day!

I wish you had said hi, I know though it is weird...

I would have been ticked too, it is SO HARD watching all your planning fly right out the window! On a positive note, the pictures with Tink are so cute!!!! I am on the edge of my seat wondering what happens next though!

My DH has the most selective hearing ever.... his mother drove him to that I guess.

Did I miss something though? I thought you got upgraded to the Contemporary?

We were moved to the Contemporary for the first two nights before our package.

We woke the girls up too, but it was worth it to get infront of the crowds. I can't imagine showing up at 11 or noon and lines you see.

Just came across your TR! What an eventful trip you already had so far!! I love the photopass pictures, especially the pose with Belle! And as everyone else, I absolutely understand the importance of being at the rope before 9:45
